Skeens, from Hydeville, Vt., has a 3.48 GPA and has received eight academic stars. She also served as one of the academys delegates to the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference and has sailed aboard the Maersk Constellation, CSX Anchorage, USNS Laramie, USNS Supply and USNS Rappahannock. Engvig, originally from Oslo, Norway, moved to San Francisco, Calif., with his family in 1991. He is currently a first classman and regimental human relations training officer at the academy as well as a senior crewmember of the M/V Growler, an ex- Coast Guard harbor tug attached to the Academy's waterfront. Griffin is a senior from Towson, Md. He is the academy's regimental waterfront officer, the skipper of the M/V Storm and co-president of the Christian Fellowship Club.

He was junior class president, a drill instructor for the class of 2006, a member of the color guard, a crewmember for two years with the varsity offshore team and editor of the midshipman newspaper. Crowley has provided scholarship aid to USMMA students since 1993. To qualify, students must obtain a predetermined grade point average (GPA) and posses leadership skills identified by the college and by Crowley. The recipients are chosen each year in the spring and fall by the academy but aren't formally recognized until December. Crowley also extends formal internships when possible as an additional benefit to the scholarship recipients.
